Indonesia Flights GuideThe Republic of Indonesia, located in both the Indian and Pacific Oceans, is the world's largest island nation, comprised of over 17,000 individual islands. Though the islands have been occupied throughout the centuries by European and Asian colonial powers, modern-day Indonesia has a culture all its own, and comprised of peoples, languages and customs as varied as its islands.
Jakarta is the capital and most important city in Indonesia, located on the island of Java. It is one of the most culturally diverse places in Indonesia, drawing immigrants from nearly all the different islands. Because of this, it can be considered one of the ultimate melting pot cities, with art festivals and cultural events reflecting this diversity year-round. In addition to Jakarta, Bali remains a popular spot for nature tourism, due to its beautiful rice paddies and famous volcanoes.
The most highly rated and highly utilized international airport in Indonesia is The Soekarno-Hatta International Airport, located in Jakarta. It is also considered the busiest airport in Southeast Asia. However, Ngurah Rai International Airport in Bali is similarly popular, as Bali is also considered a popular tourist destination. Indonesia's proximity to the equator ensures that the weather hardly fluctuates throughout the year. The climate is tropical, comprised of a wet season and a dry season, and featuring monsoons in certain regions of the country, namely the Java region. Rainfall is plentiful throughout the islands, though the ones closer to Australia tend to be a bit drier.
